Olbermann on Being Afraid of the Wrong Thing

Whew!  Keith Olbermann just keeps speaking the truth, using his podium to hold a mirror up to this society.  He doesn't let go and for that we ought to be very grateful.  But, as my sister says, "Does this guy have a bodyguard?"

This video-clip of another one of his Special Comments details the times in our history when we've used war as an excuse to move down the path of destroying our democracy from within.  He puts Bush's signing of the bill to allow torture and to allow the suspension of Habeas Corpus in some situtations in the context of similar, foolish actions by Presidents in the past.  Powerful.

Amen.

In his Monday, October 23, Special Comment, he hammered the RNC for aiding and abetting the terrorists through propaganda repeating their threats.

Amen again!
